The River Line Inn is like your home away from home. Built around 1851, the Colonial style home with mansard roof was constructed on the property of a prominent Philadelphian in the resort town of Riverton. Listed on the National Historic Register, Riverton is still a quaint village reminiscent of an era of days gone bye. Located just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia and right across the street from the Riverline light rail train station, you can be in downtown Philadelphia in just 22 minutes. Freedom, relaxation...a whole new adventure...the River Line Inn...
Guest rooms are comfortably furnished with antique full-sized and reproduction Queen-sized beds. Each bed is lavishly dressed with feather-top mattresses and cotton sateen bed linens. Two of the rooms have their own basins in the rooms, and a total of two bathrooms in the house are to be shared among friends. The River Line Inn is truly your "Home.. away from Home".

I have stayed at the Riverline Inn on numerous occasions. It is one of the best places to stay in Philadelphia area. Cindi Vee is a very positive and professional innkeeper and I would highly recommend her B&B business.

My husband and I were coming up from TX for a wedding in Philadelphia that happened to be the very same weekend as the US Open...right outside of Philadelphia. Needless to say, we were struggling to find somewhere to stay and the only places that were within our budgets had frightening reviews (i.e. Days Inn off the hwy). Then we stumbled upon the River Line Inn, which was only 10 minutes away from the wedding in New Jersey and 20 minutes away from the reception in Philly. We didn't arrive until after midnight, due to horrible flight delays, but Cindi couldn't have made our welcome more perfect. She had a lovely local wine and cheese set out for us, as well as fresh cold water and luxurious robes, all ready to help us recuperate from our day of travel. The next morning we slept in terribly late, and she had still left a wonderful continental breakfast out for us to enjoy. The next few days, we were blown away by gourmet oatmeal and the best french toast I have ever had. The home was beautiful, Cindi was the most comfortably accommodating innkeeper I've encountered and the location was perfect. We went for a run our first day there and just blocks away is a beautiful riverside drive, with stately homes, sailboats, and a wonderful little yacht club. This was truly a vacation, rather than the hectic wedding trip we anticipated, all thanks to Cindi and the River Line Inn. Now, we're tempted to move up there!

What a jewel! I've stayed in a variety of b&bs and this one is decorated with a vision of color from an artist's palette. I had a marvelous time chatting with the owner, who is fascinating. The house was owned by the woman who founded the PTA, so there is a rich heritage in its legacy. I loved it, and hope to get back.

We stayed here for one night, but it was a great night. Cindy was extremely welcoming and eager to make us as comfortable as possible. The room was very cozy and I loved the fact that it had a sink in the room. The pets were very cute and well behaved. It really felt like a home away from home. If you go there make sure you try Cindy's baked oatmeal. It is delicious and I wish I had asked her for the recipe! I would definitely recommend this Inn to anyone staying in the Philly area. It is super close to Philly and it is not to far off the New Jersey turnpike.

This is a really cute and quaint B&B. The owner is very nice and welcoming, and the whole house is just charming and adorable! Clean, quiet, comfy.... Also love the area and how close it is to the river and cute shops and cafes. I will definitely be staying here again!
